    England may aswell enjoy their WC win because on the basis of tonights performance...it'll be a long time between drinks for the next one.
    Really this side is missing Wilkinson..the more they play without him the more it sticks out a mile that he's one of their few star players. And Robinson..well he might carve up Italy, Fiji etc but he won't cause concern to any of the top teams.
    England do have big causes for concern..they're continously finishing around 5th or 6th in the U21 World Cups & just last week they were thumped by NZ by around 25 points.
    Infact it's inexcusable with the amount of money that the English Rugby Union pour into their system compared to other Nations.

    I was disappointed that NZ didn't go for more tries in the 2nd half..it could have been a 50 point margin, but obviously from half time reports Henry was just happy for them to control territory & possesion.

    So far its been an excellent day for NZ sport...Richardson is batting with a strike-rate of 70+ & we finally got an innings lead over England..minus 2 bowlers!?? perhaps if we'd played with the same passion & got the same luck at Lords & Headingly we might have done better.

    boy, was I fired up there. I probably got a little too carried away with my comments but I seriously was expecting more from that English side today.

    Funny how you disappeared Tim, wonder if it's because this mighty Black Cap team you were going on about were humbled?

    That's all right, Tim.

    We ignore you at the best of times, so why should today be any different?

    Yes I was extremely disappointed that I was unable to be here during the last week & a half. However, I was instead doing a good deed by helping my Nana move house last week in Christchurch.

    I thought Samoa had a chance at beating Scotland last week but to Scotlands credit they did actually play some decent footy.

    I think they'll be thumped by Australia though...they've got a pretty good lineup at the moment with the inclusions of Rathbone & Samo.

    I know England have come off a long season, but usually the same thing is said about NZ when they go on their end of season tour & usually they compete quite well up there in the North..even if they lose 1 on the way.

    England just had no idea on attack & never looked like scoring a try..their method of turning the ball over & then knocking over penalties or dropgoals down the other end with Wilkinson was an effective strategy but I think that strategy may have run its course.

    If Mike Catt is still one of the best backline players in England there must be something wrong? I don't think the bloke Abbott is great either.
